Shelving (wooden and metal)

Wooden and metal shelving is not accepted in your local council’s kerbside residual or recycling bag, box or bin.

Wooden and metal shelving can be recycled at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.

  • If the item of furniture is in a good condition it may be able to be reused - try using online re-use / selling.
  • Alternatively, if it is in a reasonable condition, unwanted furniture will be accepted and sometimes collected by charity shops.
  • There are re-use shops at the Household Waste Recycling Centres in Old Swan in Liverpool and South Sefton in Bootle, where you can donate furniture.
  • Furniture can also be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre, and your local Council may also offer a service for the collection of bulky household waste.
